Hi all! I haven't been here is soooo long, I don't know how many of you remember me.
A little bit about me, I have a wonderful DH and two great boys. Jake is 9 (almost 10!) and Jonah is 7. I work sort of part time (I work four 8 hr days and then come in sometimes on my day off) and recently I've been bringing some extra work home with me. I feel like with me working exta and the kids' sports, church, other activites we're always on the go! Last night we had a "do nothing but hang with family night" which was really nice, but won't be having a lot of those I don't think . that is causing me some anxiety. But we need the extra money I'm bringing in.
I've been feeling just out of it lately. I don't feel as close to God as I'd like. I'm reading my bible, praying, goign to church, all those things and yet he seems far away. I'm not sure what I need to do.
We've had several unexpected expenses come up (car repair, DH got hit and our car was totaled-- he was fine, PTL!) we were getting our finances in order with the Dave Ramsey program and then just got knocked off. I know and believe that God will provide for us and the finances part doens't have me all that worried. What I'm struggling with is how much we should be trying to plan and how to let God handle stuff without just being lazy.... does that make sense?
We are also planning on moving in the spring, to a different area with a better school system. So I have that kind of looming in the background. I want to plan things out so that goes smoothly, but feel guilty planning... should I leave that to God?
Any advise or just plain prayers would be so greatly appreciated!!!
Hoping to jump back into posting around here too. I miss the commraderie (did I spell tht right?) of this group!!
